It sounds like you're still in the process of getting to know each other and learning to communicate. When two people meet, they each have their own expectations. It seems that your expectation is that she not spends time with males friends. Her expectation is that you trust her to be faithful even if she does have male friends she hangs out with. Now you've apologized to get her back, but don't really think you did anything wrong. This will probably continue to be an issue unless the two of you talk it out, and come to some agreement about this and other issues. If the two of you can't agree on big issues like this, it's better that you not get married.

when I ask her in first time to marry her she said I Like you alot and I need time but she didn't say she love me and after 8 months I ask her again she said that she will go back home and live there and I told her I could come and open a coffe there will you marry me she said yes then she said she want someone that make her to feel love and make her to forget her family and we keep that subject for the time she said may be she will feel that with me or may be not she said that she want time I ask her how long she said I don't know!! and now she sometimes talk about having kids and talk about some married couples and she talk about the house she want to live in but she always use "I" instead of "we" so is that sing she want to marry me or she just say that

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have helped people resolve relational issues for several years. I hope I can be of help to you!
Expert:  JohnMichaels,MS,LPC replied 2 years ago.
It sounds to me you have totally different expectations. You want a serious relationship right now and she doesn't appear anywhere close to that. You are seemingly trying to win her commitment with gifts and concessions. This seems to be a risky way to build a relationship. I fear if you win her this way this may be the destiny of your relationship. I feel you have a couple choices. Either you break this relationship off and seek out somebody with similar goals and expectations to yours or you continue to see this girl, but slow down and give her care for you time to grow, understanding her commitment to you may never be the same as yours to her. Of course, another choice is to continue to chase her with gifts and concessions. I know this may seem harsh, but it is my perception with the limited knowledge I have of your relationship. I hope I have been of help. You can interact further if you wish even after you accept. Thank you for letting me help!

Expert:  JohnMichaels,MS,LPC replied 2 years ago.
OK, you have confronted her and this obviously angered her, for which you apologized. You are still suspicious of her, but want to win her over. I believe that is only going to happen if you remain loyal to her as a friend. Quit pursuing her. Just be there for her and let her pursue you, This is no guarantee, but I believe it is your only opportunity. I will say it again, quit chasing her and make her come to you. Go ahead and be her friend, but be content with that. I know this is difficult, but it is all I have. I hope I have been helpful. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask them, even after you accept. I am here to help you!
